20 Most Recent Husqvarna 23 Hp 48" Deck Yard Tractor Questions & Answers

Did you carry out the correct bleeding procedure? back wheels off the ground half engine revs, five forward shifts the five reverse shifts, now put unit in bypass and same again, carry this out two or three times until the there is a smooth drive and no noise, if this does not work check the brake disc on the side of the unit is not binding, if this is ok then there is some internal damage, inside the unit there is a alloy centre section with a cylinder block and pistons running on it, if the running face is scarred then oil will leak between the two mating surfaces and there will be little or no power, this will get worse the hotter the unit gets. You can remove the two half's of the unit and replace these components.

This is an internal leak in the gear box, if there has been no oil leakage there is no value in topping the unit up, you could check the disc brake on the side of the gearbox is not binding, it is adjustable with a 1/2 spanner, if all else fails it is a new unit or a rebuild with new centre section kit.

If the deck was supplied with grease zerks, they will be located on top of the spindle mandrels. If there are no zerks on the spindle mandrels, the bearing are a sealed bearing and need no greasing.

Mine is a 2008, I think. I'll keep watching it and see. This is a digital display and it came on at 500 Hr. I found no reset hole, so that must be the answer.

Thanks for the info.

Hello eddher:

The Following is a General Instruction File I Made for this Problem. Readjust the Brake Rods to the Original Positions. Now to Adjust the Brake Pads. Tighten the Center Adjusting Nut Until SNUG. Loosen the Adjuster Nut 1/8 Turn and Try the Brakes. If Braking is Not to your Satisfaction, then Adjust the Center Adjusting Nut on the Disc Brake Assembly Slightly (1/8" at a time) Until the Proper Braking is Achieved.
The Brake Assembly is on the Left Side of you Hydro Transaxle.
You can View the Husqvarna Model List at this Site Addy, http://www.partstree.com/parts/ and Click on the Husqvarna Logo. Now Enter the Model Numbers GTH 2448 T in the Search Box on the Left and Click Go. Now Select the Model of the Equipment you Wish to View. The GTH 2448 T 917.279260 has a Hydro transaxle Breakdown.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.

Check your drive belt. If you removed the rear wheels, make sure you reinstalled the drive keys.

Try putting a jumper wire on the wire going from the engine to the seat. Take that plug and put a wire from one side to the other. Be careful not to cut your feet off when engaging deck.

This typically indicates a bad spark plug or coil on one side. Possibly the wiring going to the coil or from the coil to the plug. Use a spark tester to test for spark on that side.

Other less fun problems are the valves on that side need adjustment.

What are the size of the streaks? and where in the 48 inch swath?

Husqvarna 23 Hp... | Answered on Aug 06, 2014

check for a area of the wire insulation that has been wore off against the frame or body of the mower. sounds like a electrical short. it may be a very small spot that's all it takes so check well

One or more of the pulleys are worn and need to be replaced. The method I use is to pull the belt away and hand-spin each pulley to see which one has a grinding sound or loose feel. (A new pulley will feel rock solid and have no sound when you spin it.)
